I'm assisting a relative in Norway in locating his father Ole Paul Arnesen Haugen. Ole was born on April 9, 1906 and emigrated to Quebec Quebec Canada on the Duchess of York arriving on May 9, 1930. He was 24 years old. His passenger papers state he was going to work on a farm for a Mr. R.C. Bosworth, CPR in Winnipeg Manitoba (data from Library and Archives of Canada Microfilm Reel # T-14763, vol 3, page 142, item 370162.) I'm unable to locate records from the Canadian Pacific Railroad Immigration Program and Ole Haugen does not show up in the databases after his arrival in 1930. Would welcome some suggestions as where to search. The only hit I received that may match his knowns is a burial in Ponoka Red Deer Census Division, Alberta Canada for Ole P Haugen born in the correct year because the headstone states he was 58 years old when passing on February 20,1965 (find a grave listing for Forest Home Cemetery). I seem to have hit a dead end. Any suggestions?

There is a Rhey C Bosworth living in St Paul and traveling to Winnipeg, Manitoba. The destination for this trip is his employer C.P.R. Col. Department in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Rhey and his wife are living in St Paul at this time. Date of the record may be 1930.

Rhey C Bosworth
in the Border Crossings: From U.S. to Canada, 1908-193

Rhey and his family are living in St Paul in 1930 US Census.

1930

Based on several Family Trees, he was born in Iowa and lived there in 1900 Census. Was single and an engineer and living in Spokane, Washington in the 1910 US Census.

In 1920 he is married still living in Spokane and listed as a farmer.

In 1940 he is living in St Paul, Minnesota and is listed as Superintendent Of Colonization for a Steam Railroad.

I found no evidence that he lived in Canada.

In his WWI Draft Registration he was living in Spokane and lists himself as District Representative for Canadian Pacific Railroad.

In his WWII Draft Registration he is living in St Paul an is working for the Canadian Pacific Railroad.

Thank you for all the information on R.C. Bosworth jkmarler. It explains a lot. I'll need to contact CPR to see if they have Bosworkth's records on file some place (archived) so I can find where Ole Haugen was settled or what farm he worked on. I checked out Our Roots website but it appears there are no databases but lots of history books. Not sure where to start on books when I do not have a location to check. I may get a response from the Canadian Legion regarding the burial of Pvt Ole P Haugen to see if there is any connection there. Again thank you for your assistance.

Are there other databases besides the "Vermont, St. Albans - Canadian Border Crossings 1895-1954" that contain records of Canadians coming to the USA?
